Geology of the fluorite occurrences, Spor Mountain, Juab County, Utah (SS-53)


By: K. C. Bullock

The present work is a study of the geology of the fluorite occurrences in Spor Mountain, and their relationships to the uranium and beryllium deposits and to the volcanic history of the area. Data and concepts have gradually accumulated and have modified over a period of nearly forty years. Clarification of the Paleozoic stratigraphy is given, classification of the volcanic sequences has changed, the structural setting is reviewed, fluorite occurrences are updated, and the forms of the fluorite ore bodies and the types of ore are described in some detail. The fluorite deposits appear to approach exhaustion; whereas beryllium mining flourishes, uranium may once again be important, and other mineral production may be on the horizon in the Thomas Range and adjacent areas.
